The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Sunday that Obama administration political appointees removed references to al Qaeda-linked groups from intelligence agencies’ accounts of the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Rep. Michael Rogers, Michigan Republican, said the White House’s National Security Council Deputies Committee had altered an unclassified summary of what U.S. intelligence knew about the attack, which U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice relied on during her now-infamous round of TV interviews on Sept. 16.
“There was not an intelligence failure. The intelligence community had it right, and they had it right early,” Mr. Rogers said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
